Unpaid city fines top $1M

For more than three decades, the city of Lancaster has allowed those with limited incomes who owe municipal court fines to make small payments over time instead of paying the entire amount within 90 days as the law stipulates.
But far too often, people have not kept up with those payment plans, and the city hasn’t done much about that.
No one knows exactly how or when this started, but the amount in back fines continues to balloon and today probably tops $1 million, city officials say.
